Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! I know it sounds strange but it so fun to dress up, hand out candy, EAT candy, and just be a KID! When Todd and I moved on this street, we had no idea that Halloween would take place RIGHT HERE! LOL! I think I bought 2 bags of candy and we were out of candy in a matter of 30 minutes.
So ten years later, we are now embracing Halloween! We buy about $200 worth of candy each year and rarely have any left over! We see everyone we know from our community in 2.5hours! AMAZING!
And what's so funny is our kids love Halloween too.... They love getting the yard and porch decorated with spooky stuff and haunted music.... and they love handing out the candy to their friends.
In the last few years, our house has become the hang out house....come trick or treat and then hang out and visit! But this year we took it a step further. We did Happy HalloWEENIES in my front yard as an OUTREACH to our community! We set-up a hot stand and handed out free hot dogs and water to everyone that came by! It was soo much fun! We had lots of church family here, lots of friends, lots of neighbors, and lots of new faces. What a way to get to know people....and so easy and laid back!
Take a look at our night......320 hot dogs down! (Note to Self: Next year- we need 450 hot dogs or more cos we ran out).
